Whereas traditional synthetic fibres are loose and require baffles to hold them into place, PlumaFill is constructed as continuous strands of material, which combined with an offset, discontinuous quilting construction prevents the insulation from shifting around and creating cold spots. This type of fibre combined with a unique quilting pattern means that large air spaces are created inside, mimicking how down traps heat. It also makes the insulation more durable, as PlumaFill, being a continuous strand unlike down, does not clump.
